I only had the opportunity to meet you on a few occasions but I never left without you making an impression. You weren’t afraid to say it like it was. I vividly remember you ensuring that the pizza we ordered had every topping under the sun.
More than that are the stories your daughter Angela has told me over the years about her family. Many of which are happy & funny but also poignant and sometimes sad. All of which I will remember & have given me a great deal of perspective. The character of an individual can often be measured in their children & from my experience in knowing Angela that would make you quite the man.
You will be remembered often & missed by many.
